Gently Sloping Prime Residential Land
This plot of over 1.2 acres of prime land is situated in the desirable Mount Pleasant residential area of the island.Mount Pleasant is a quiet and friendly hilltop community not far from Port Elizabeth & its amenities. These gently sloping lands are some of the most attractive available in this area.
Ideal for Vacation Rental Investment
The plot would be a perfect position for the construction of a beautiful villa with room for a pool and gardens, and a potentially lucrative vacation rental property. With the arrival of the new airport in St.Vincent the influx of overseas visitors to the region is bound to increase providing a need for additional accommodations on the island.
Views are fantastic stretching south overlooking the Atlantic and the whole Grenadines Island chain including Mustique, Balliceaux, Battawia, Canouan and other Southern Grenadine Islands including Grenada on a clear day.
Close to Beautiful Bays & Beaches
The Mount Pleasant area was originally inhabited by locals originating from French settlers and offers a rugged landscape with breathtaking views and close proximity to stunning beaches like Hope Bay.
A ten-fifteen minute walk will take you to beautiful unspoiled beaches of Hope, Ravine & Rocky Bays.
Breezy & Elevated
The land is cool and breezy due to its lofty position and this provides the land with natural air conditioning and a comfortable environment, it is sheltered sufficiently in the event of heavier weather.
The access road is not yet in place - it would be private. If sold at the full asking price the owner would put this road in himself.
A central hilly area, Mount Pleasant enjoys a perfect combination of breezy elevation, rolling landscape, and access down to the beaches on both the Atlantic and Caribbean side and to the harbour town of Port Elizabeth. A very civilized retreat to enjoy Bequia from. Traditionally home of the islanders with roots in the French settlers, this is a long established residential location often with breathaking panoramic views.
